The Light Daily Devotional – Man is Powerless
Focus: Man is Powerless
WORD FOR TODAY
Every power a man possesses is delegated; man is nothing without God’s breath. A man does not realize how inadequate he is until God turns against him and stops having his back!
“Then she cried out, “Samson! The Philistines have come to capture you!” When he woke up, he thought, “I will do as before and shake myself free.” But he didn’t realize the LORD had left him.” Judges 16:20 NLT
The breath of God in a man is what makes him a living soul. When God’s breath departs from a man, his life comes to an end. Samson slaughtered a lion as well as several Philistines. God’s grace worked so powerfully in his life that he was dubbed Samson the Great. When God’s grace was taken from Him, his enemies used him as a tool for entertainment.
When God empowers you in any capacity, keep in mind that you were not created that way. Grace was made available to you at some point, and God used men to carry you. The more God empowers you, the more grace you should find to remain humble and acknowledge God’s grace. Also, if you want to reach a certain level of success in any aspect of your life, keep in mind that by strength no man shall prevail. You will only succeed and fulfil your mandate by His grace alone.
+ How powerful do you think you are?
Prayer: Lord! I am powerless, do not stop helping me; continue to have my back in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: Man is powerless; it is God’s grace in men’s lives that makes them appear powerful!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
